Nymans Gardens is a special place. The gardens really are wonderful at any time of year but especially when the rhododendrons, azaleas and magnolias are in flower, and the woodland walks are fantastic when the bluebells are out. The house has about five rooms open to the public, although most of it is a ruin following a fire. The whole... More

Nymans is a lovely garden with easy walking and much longer woodland walks if you are more adventurous. The gardens have been much approved over the last few years and are particularly beautiful in the springtime, but are lovely all year with great views towards the South Downs. The only downside is its popularity. I have given up visiting twice... More

Beautiful grounds with plenty to see even in winter and very friendly helpful volunteers. Wednesdays in winter they do a behind the scenes house tour at 11.30. As it was such an awful day, we were the only ones to turn up and so had a personal tour with two delightful conservators. Lunch in the restaurant ended a great visit.... More

We have visited this garden many times over the years and never fail to be impressed. The house is well worth a tour. Check NT for opening times. There is also a used book shop in the grounds which has a selection of good books for sale. The Café is also very good and staff helpful. The shop provides a... More

The gardens themselves are lovely, but the tea room really needs to up its game. Moody ungracious staff, took a lot of persuading to clear the table that we sat at, undrinkable cappuccino made with scalding hot milk, 'average' machine-made hot chocolate with no option of whipped cream or extra toppings, which you'd expect for the price. Seating area is... More

I am fortunate to live locally, and try to visit 4 times per year, roughly one visit for each season. No need for a description, check out their website for this, but it's great at any season. Staff are always friendly and helpful, if sometimes inexperienced. In summer the flower borders in the walled garden are outstanding, but there's always... More

We visited Nymans yesterday and set off trying to find the 100 Father Christmas stars hidden around the garden. The tour was very good, it made us visit parts of the garden we hadn't been to before. The only feedback would be that having had to pay £1 for the trail only getting a sticker for taking part was a... More

We took two of our Grandchildren (aged 9 and 3) to Nymans on Christmas Eve. As you would expect the Gardens are not at their best at this time of year. However we opted for the Christmas Trail - find a 100 different tags scattered all around the garden - in all sorts of locations. We "only" found 63 before... More

This is a medium-sized garden which you can easily visit in a morning or afternoon, perhaps leaving time to visit another National Trust property during the same day. (Sheffield Park and Wakehurst Place are also within an hour's drive). There is an add-on longer woodland walk that you can also do, but the main garden is formally laid-out and the... More
